In the midst of a rhino poaching disaster, we take a look back to a moment captured by Tammy Dennis two years ago when a female rhino brought a baby rhino into the world.

Tammy explains: ‘This photo was taken in Aquila Private Game Reserve on a game drive at 18:00. When we first spotted the female she had 2 feet hanging and we realised the mother was giving birth. The birth took 30 minutes. It was an unforgettable and incredible experience and shows hope for the future of our rhinos.’

It may be a glimmer from the past, but it still gives us hope for the future survival of our rhinos.

    Its wonderful to see and know about these precious creatures and the blessing of a birth, Given that there are still some Rhino in certain reserves and people do know of their whereabouts, I believe, however, that in this moment in time, where there are such unimaginable high poaching attacks on our Rhinoceros populations, any public forum should be cautious about sharing / advertising the areas/reserves where these animals are still to be found.

    What an amazing photograph the miracle of life, I hope it lives a long and healthy life. As for the poachers shoot the f*****s where it hurts and leave them to be finished off by the scavengers.

    Say No to No Rhi No’s, an organisaiton by the name of My Rhino has started a wonderful initiative in the fight against rhino poaching. They have over 200 different designs of rhinos, and their designs are growing daily. From each purchase online they donate R100 towards the Kariega Foundation in the Eastern Cape.
